Young Adult Book Reviews – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Hunger Games, and Catching Fire

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My husband and I read this aloud to each other – a chapter a night to begin with. As the pace picked up, it was hard to stop reading, so we often bumped it up to two chapters. It was a page-turner, but at the same time a book to savor. My next reads will definitely be Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like the Harry Potter series, this series has been intensifying as it continues. The first book, The Hunger Games, focused on Katniss, her immediate circle of family and friends, and her personal problems. The second book expands – no longer is the worry soley for Katniss – it’s now for Panem as a whole. I’m look forward to the third and final book – and a revolution, perhaps?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was the first in the series that turned quite a bit darker. No longer are we talking a vague sense of evil, or Voldemort vs. Harry Potter – it’s getting more complicated. I was a huge fan of the book and can’t wait to re-read the final three.

    Great books! Mockingjay is every bit as good, if not even better, than the first two! Enjoy!
